Guided Walks 2019

Our escorted walks are designed with three objectives in mind:

 

  • Independence – Walk the Camino at a pace that suits you. When you need us, our Group Leader and the group is there for you, but we believe that everyone should experience the Camino for themselves! No rules, no restrictions!
  • Fun! The Camino is vibrant and positive – it’s there to be enjoyed by all those who walk! 
  • Value and Service– No Irish operator will match the value and personal touch of Camino Groups!

 

But there is some bad news – all our guided tours in 2018 sold out and places are limited so contact us now!

 

April 20th – 28th     The Portuguese Camino from Porto to Baiona

If you ever wanted a Camino walk that gives you ocean and beaches by day and amazing towns by night, then this is it!

Spend 2 nights in Porto and then walk northwards with the Atlantic to your left-hand side. Spend nights in the Portuguese towns of Vila do Conde, Esposende, Viana do Castelo and Vila Praia d’Áncora before taking a ferry into Spain and continuing on to Oia and Baiona.

Beautiful beaches, historic towns and a taste of 2 countries – even the blisters will be worth it!

May 18th – 25th     The Portuguese Camino from Valenҫa to Santiago

This is the quieter cousin of the Sarria – Santiago section, a section of the Camino that allows you to finish in Santiago (and get your Compostela). Based over 6 days’ walking instead of 5, this is an ideal section for those looking for a more manageable walk.

Starting on the Portuguese side of the Minho river, you leave the fortress town of Valenҫa to pass into Spain, over an Eiffel-designed bridge, no less! The towns of O Porriño and Arcade await, before a short day into Pontevedra, allowing you to explore the old centre of this interesting city.

Experience the thermal baths of Caldas de Reis and the famous Pimientos de Padrón before your journey ends at the mighty cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

June 22nd – 29th     The Camino to Finisterre and Muxía

This is a treat for walkers and for those who may already walked to Santiago – unique in that it’s a Camino route that starts from Santiago.

Spend 4 days walking through beautiful Galician countryside to arrive at world’s end – Finisterre. Having already spent nights in Negreira, Olveiroa and Cée, you then leave Finisterre for a 5th day’s walk to Muxía, the town perched on the wild Costa da Morte.

Add in a day trip to the picturesque city of La Coruña and its iconic Torre de Hercules lighthouse (where you can read up on your Irish Celtic routes), before returning to Santiago for one last night.

Sept 28th – Oct 5th     The French Camino from Sarria to Santiago

If you have never walked on the Camino before, then this is the ideal place to start (and a pleasant time of year too!).

This is the most popular section of the most popular route – walking 115km to finish in the cathedral city of Santiago. Pass through Galician dairy farms and walk in rolling countryside, experiencing the rebuilt town of Portomarín and the romantically named Palas de Rei.

Eating pulpo (octopus) in Melide and the famous cheese of Arzúa are culinary musts, before spending a final night in Pedrouzo. Your final walk into Santiago is one shared by countless pilgrims over a millennium, leaving a free day to explore the delights of the famous city.
